Enhancement in Fuel Economy may Hamper Market Development

On the other hand, a number of efforts taken by regulatory bodies and OEMs in enhancing the fuel economy of vehicles may pose a threat to the development of the global transportation fuel market. OEMs globally are making investments in a number of research and development activities in order to enhance vehicles’ fuel economy. In addition, efforts taken by regulatory bodies for increasing fuel economy will also reduce the overall consumption of crude-based fuels and will thus lower carbon emissions, states a TMR analyst.

Nevertheless, the increasing demand for alternative fuels including compressed natural gas, ethanol, and biodiesel from the sector of transportation is predicted to rise in forthcoming years. This is owing to the fact that biofuels are eco-friendly in nature and lower the overall greenhouse gas emissions. This is a key opportunity in the global transportation fuel market.
